Sarah Palin: McCain's Biggest Mistake Was Shielding Me From The Press

Yes, she actually said that. And yes, this is what happened when she was actually allowed to speak to the press. And this. And this. And this. And..

Yes, she actually said that. And yes, this is what happened when she was actually allowed to speak to the press. And this. And this. And this. And... oh, you get the point.

GIZZI: What was the biggest mistake made in the ’08 campaign?

PALIN: The biggest mistake made was that I could have called more shots on this: the opportunities that were not seized to speak to more Americans via media. I was not allowed to do very many interviews, and the interviews that I did were not necessarily those I would have chosen. But I was so thankful to have the opportunity to run with John McCain that I was not going to argue with the strategy decisions that some of his people were making regarding the media contacts.

But if I would have been in charge, I would have wanted to speak to more reporters because that’s how you get your message out to the electorate.

Seriously...what is wrong with these people? Palin thinks McCain lost because he didn't let her embarrass herself enough in the press? I bet the dead-ender wingnuts think she just didn't wink enough.

I'm with John Cole here:

Seriously, the only people more excited about this than the Palin dead-enders are… every single Democrat in the country. Hold her close. Embrace the Palin. Show the country this is your vision for the future GOP.

Pretty please?
